Our very first Bishop, Henry Benjamin Whipple worked and served with the Native American community. While others were persecuting them, he was ordaining them. The Episcopal Church in Minnesota continues that legacy.
The Episcopal Church in Minnesota maintains one of the largest Departments of Indian Work in the entire Episcopal Church, with faith communities on nearly every Reservation in Minnesota. Additionally, we support faith communities welcoming the newest Minnesotans by worshiping in several languages including Hmong and Spanish.
